Default Would appreciate info on purchasing decision

Like many people, I want to make the jump to a digital camera. I have been researching this but without having one a digital camera I wonder if I am making assumptions about what I need based on 35mm experience. I would appreciate comments and suggestions.

What I would like to capture on camera: 1- people portraits and 2 - close up of insects and flowers etc. 3 – last, neat scenery.

What is important to me: 1- smallness and portability. 2. Quality pictures

This is what I was considering:
1. Canon A70 or Nikon 3100
Or go smaller with
2. Canon S230 or Pentax Optico S

I wonder:
1. Which of the cameras I looked at would do what I want.
2. Are there better alternatives
3. Have not seen a review for the Pentax Optio S – I am quite taken by the size but will it do what I want?

Thank you
